Advocates for the Nordic Model for sex work argue that this
approach does not target sex workers themselves, only their clients.
However, Jane Green and Cameron Cox dispute these claims
and argue that it is decriminalisation that leads to the best outcomes for sex
workers. Jane Green is a sex worker who is on the Executive Committee of
the Scarlet Alliance. Cameron
Cox is a sex worker who is involved in a sex worker outreach organisation.
Jane and Cameron also discuss Amnesty International’s AGM
where different approaches to sex work were debated; the “rescue
industry”; why they are #NotYourRescueProject;
transphobia; sex work as real work; unions
for sex workers; sex work phobia/whorephobia – follow @AnarchaSxworker for more
on whorephobia; and links between homophobia and whorephobia.
